The day before he would take the court on one of the biggest stages in basketball, Matthew Dellavedova talked about one of his favorite topics — the Saint Mary’s Gaels. Before the NBA Finals began, Delly gave his impressions of last year’s Gaels Basketball team and his expectations for the coming year.
“I think Emmett (Naar) had a really great year. I think Jock (Landale)’s going to be a force over the next couple years,” Delly said of the current team. “I think Coach B did maybe one of his best coaching jobs with that group.”
